NEW YORK (AP) - A second voicemail message from Chevy Chase leaked online Tuesday, depicting a deep rift between the veteran comedian and the creators of his ratings-challenged NBC sitcom "Community."

The show's creator Dan Harmon played voicemails from Chase at a Los Angeles comedy show months ago. They have since found their way on to the Internet, including a recording released Tuesday by Celebuzz.com.

In it, Chase calls "Community" a "mediocre sitcom" that "is not my kind of comedy." Chase abrasively tells Harmon that "Community" isn't meshing with him and "I've been making a lot of people laugh a lot better than this."

Harmon earlier wrote a lengthy apology on his Tumblr page. He called his decision to make public the voicemails "horrible, childish... and unprofessional."
